11:35pm
this and to come through. it those be special emotionally for you. >> player: it was special before the night even started. being able to pitch a game in the world series is something, you know, two years ago before this started i never thought was going to happen. i was really, really pumped up to be out here tonight. it feels really good to finally be in a world series. and, you know, it's not over yet. we have to win one more. >> chris: matt cain will be pitching. what will you do tomorrow? >> player: we'll sit down tonight or tomorrow and we feed off each other. do what i can to give him an idea how i attack guys. i expect cain to come out and throw well. he's been throwing the ball great all season. he is our number one. look for him to have a good game. >> chris: congratulations. i know your wife will tweet about this. >> player: h so. >> chris: back up to joe and tim. >> joe: he says i'll do the best i can. he has been doing his best all post season long. plenty good enough! vogelsong is now 3-0 this

11:40pm
cabrera ahead and prince in the order. that was the biggest ball of the night. they had another opportunity and end up having cabrera up with two outs and the bases loaded. great pitching by vogelsong. popped up. to end that threat. in a 2-nothing game, hey, there are a lot more opportunities but those are the two big ones that stood out to me. >> eric: they do. you mentioned the first inning. for me, that was the biggest one because you have prince fielder at the plate. runners on first and second. the tiger players and the fans are looking for something. what does he do? hits in a double play. this team is prince fielder and miguel cabrera. it's not, you know, quintin berry. >> a.j.: i hate to pile on quintin berry but there two other huge at-bats for quintin berry. the one before cabrera popped up. struck out with bases loaded one out. second inning struck out off lincecum so that meant cabrera and fielder come up with nobody on base in eighth. had a bad night. it stinks but you have to get them tomorrow. >> matt: on the other side, the giants are red hot. they have won six straight

11:42pm
curveball. i did damage with it. >> ken: gregor, thank you. tim, another good outing. how much are you enjoying this role? >> player: we're all enjoying this right now. up 3-nothing in the world series. couldn't be better than that. we have another game to win. so we're looking forward to tomorrow. tomorrow. kentucky when bochy said we're not starting you, how did it feel to you? >> player: it didn't feel that confusing at all. i was expecting it. not take it as demotion but a role to do something good for the team. >> ken: ryan tonight, what did you think? >> player: he did a great job all year and outstanding in the playoffs. he has been through so much. and go out here on this stage, do what he has done, i'm proud of the guy. >> ken: thank you. >> player: thank you. >> ken: matt, back to you. >> matt: ken, thanks. we spin it over to game four. 40 years of major league experience here with me and harold from both sides of the angle here, the tigers, the
11:43pm
giants, how do you move to game four? >> harold: the giants one, do what you're doing. playing great defense and locating. tigers, you to manufacturer and get people moving. you had opportunities to get runners on the bases moving. that hasn't happened with the weather. you are not going to bang and win games in this ballpark. >> eric: you are right on. make something happen. it's tough, though. you are just not doing much against the giant pitching. the reality is, four runs in the last six games against this pitching staff. >> matt: you can talk about a layoff for the tigers, the bottom line i the giants staff is dealing. -and-what are they going to do? they didn't steal a lot of bases in the regular season, the tigers. they are a power hitting team. they need cabrera and fielder to hit home runs and in game four they face the giants best pitcher matt cain who didn't give up a run all last post season. started all-star and perfect game under his belt. good luck, guys. >> matt: a tough matchup for the tigers in game four. let's take a look at it and how it reads on paper. matt cain won the division
